Who should attend
* Integration developers wishing to learn to develop in Mule.
* Related roles such as architects and solution consultants, so long as they meet the prerequisite development background described under Prerequisites below.
Pre-requisitesThis course goes through the usage of integration technologies and development on Mule. Its primary language basis is in XML, Java, and Spring. As a course it does not cover how to develop in Java or Spring, only how they are used in Mule. Participants should have the following:
* Working knowledge of Java is preferred, familiarity with at least one object-oriented programming language is required, and a couple months of on-the-job experience is recommended
* Basic understanding of data formats such as XML, CSV, JSON
*Basic understanding of typical integration technologies, such as HTTP, JMS, JDBC, REST, and SOAP
* Attending the Intro to Mule Fundamentals short eLearning course beforehand is suggested.
Some courses have been given to .NET environments. While these have been successful, it is more challenging for the participants to go from .NET to Java in Mule. It's recommended that if the primary language is .NET based, then developers should take a primer on Java before the course.
